Hundreds of runners and volunteers helped make North Rotary's tenth annual fundraising event a huge success. 
Galloping Gertie, a 5k, 10k, and half-marathon race across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, drew nearly 600 participants representing at least 25 states and 3 Canadian provinces. 
 
Revenue from sponsors and runners broke records this year. All profits from the race will benefit local children through the Children's Home Society, Communities in Schools Peninsula, and FoodBackpacks4Kids
 
We'd like to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who played a part in making this event a success...
